Carbon Monoxide - New Ontario Regulation

Carbon Monoxide is a colourless, tasteless, odourless gas , slightly less dense than air and mixes well with air. A person can be exposed to the gas and not realize its presence.  CO is primarily produced by incomplete combustion of fuels such as natural gas, propane, heating oil, gasoline, charcoal and wood.

To prevent CO poisoning, be sure to maintain and operate fuel burning appliances, inspect, clean and maintain chimneys, flues and flue pipes. Avoid hazardous activities, such as idling a vehicle in the garage, unsafe use of generators or BBQs indoors. Always install and maintain CO alarms in the home.

The new regulation requires all residential occupancies with a fuel burning appliance and/or attached garage to install and maintain Carbon Monoxide alarms adjacent to sleeping areas. Carbon Monoxide alarms are required to be installed by April 15th, 2015 at the latest for residential occupancies with no more than six residential suites. Residential occupancies with more than six residential suites are required to install and maintain CO alarms by October 15th, 2015.
